Query String/Registration URL Mask
The query string is an option selected in InGo's Admin that displays a "registered" symbol glyph rather than the element "reg." This is so information can be passed through the query string itself to the third party receiving it.
A good example of this use would be if a registration company (or anybody who actually collects the registration data) wishes to somehow know the source of where people are coming from, or if they wish to parse the information and dump certain people in buckets, say for example, anybody with the TITLE=DIRECTOR, then this is the exact purpose of the query string.
Insert these directly into the event's main Edit box, first selecting the "enable query string" and insert the following parameters
- %first_name% - First Name
- %last_name% - Last Name
- %email% - Email Address
- %company% - Company Name
- %company_position% - Title/Position
- %social_channel% - What Social Network the User Utilized
- %is_social_user% - If they are a Social Network User
Unfortunately, on InGo's platform, this is a known bug with Lift (our web framework) and the way it looks for characters. So if you're having issues when passing query strings to other parties, use the below as an example.
If your Query string is looking like this:
it will become
What you need to do to resolve is this:
- Look for: "®" replace with: "®ISTRATION"
- You're done.
